Transport Ministry to recall more than 5,000 motorcycles
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said yesterday that more than 5,000 motorcycles imported by BMW Korea will be recalled due to defects in switches and fuel pumps.
According to the ministry, 3,204 BMW motorcycles will be recalled for faulty switches that activate signal lights and head lamps. It said that 16 models including the C600S will be recalled, with manufacturing dates from January 2009 to July 2013.
In addition, the ministry said that 2,142 BMW motorcycles will be recalled because of possible fuel leaks that can be caused by cracks in auto parts connected to the fuel pump. Eighteen models including the R1200R could have the problem.
Owners of these motorcycles can get free repairs at BMW Korea service centers nationwide.
